Free agent OT Eric Winston will visit the Eagles on Tuesday.
As is free agent OG Wade Smith. The Eagles are in deep trouble at right tackle after Allen Barbre suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win. Starter Lane Johnson is suspended for the next three games, leaving Chip Kelly and company with journeyman Andrew Gardner to the right of LT Jason Peters. Winston has reportedly also drawn interest from the Packers. Sep 9 - 1:42 PM

Date:

The Packers have interest in free agent RT Eric Winston.

Winston could give the Packers a starting option at right tackle until Bryan Bulaga (knee) returns. Derek Sherrod struggled mightily in Thursday night's loss to Seattle, giving up two sacks. Bulaga is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.
Sep 5 - 9:14 PM

Seahawks released RT Eric Winston.

The president of the NFLPA is out of a day job once again. Winston, 30, was brought in on a flier to see if he could unseat rookie Justin Britt at right tackle, but apparently struggled just as badly as he did while getting embarrassed as a Cardinal last season.
Aug 30 - 1:26 PM

Seahawks signed RT Eric Winston to a one-year contract.

Winston, 30, started all 16 games at right tackle for the Cardinals last season, but struggled both in the run and pass games and graded out as a bottom-eight tackle at Pro Football Focus. In Seattle, the favorite for starting right-tackle duties is Michael Bowie. Second-round rookie Justin Britt is also in the mix to replace the departed Breno Giacomini. Winston will simply compete for a spot.

Profootballtalk expects the Ravens to give free agent RT Eric Winston a "look-see."

Now that June 1 has arrived, unsigned players are classified as "street" free agents and won't factor into the 2015 compensatory-pick equation. Veterans like Winston, DT Kevin Williams, RB Ronnie Brown, and CB Terrell Thomas could find homes for at least the summer shortly. Winston has a history with Ravens OC Gary Kubiak from their Texans days, and Baltimore needs a right tackle.
Jun 1 - 11:24 AM

The Ravens could look at free agent RT Eric Winston if they don't select a right tackle early in the draft.

It's a logical fit that keeps coming up because Winston was Gary Kubiak's starting right tackle for five seasons in Houston. Kubiak is now Baltimore's offensive coordinator. The 30-year-old Winston would serve as competition for in-house candidate Ricky Wagner -- assuming they can't land a tackle like Notre Dame's Zack Martin or Michigan's Taylor Lewan at No. 17 overall.

Coach John Harbaugh confirmed the Ravens have not had any contract talks with free agent RT Eric Winston.

The Ravens have just Ricky Wagner as an in-house replacement for Michael Oher, but 30-year-old Winston wouldn't be much of an upgrade despite his ties to OC Gary Kubiak. ESPN's Jamison Hensley expects Baltimore to target a right tackle early in the draft.

Free agent RT Eric Winston wants to sign with a team before the draft.

As would all veteran players left on the market. Winston prefers to remain with the Cardinals but admits talks haven't been "super positive." Some believe Winston's new title as NFLPA president may be working against him.
Mar 30 - 12:03 PM

Free agent RT Eric Winston said a few teams have expressed interest in him.

Winston, 30, says he's being selective. Working against him is that he's a right tackle only without versatility. The new NFLPA president started all 16 games on the right side for Arizona last season, surrendering seven sacks. At 6-foot-7 and 302 pounds, Winston is a natural in zone-blocking systems.

New NFLPA president Eric Winston guaranteed that an 18-game season will not happen under his watch.

"It's a safety issue," Winston said. The free agent tackle did allow that he and the player union are open to the idea of adding one playoff team to each conference, thus creating six total games on Wild Card Weekend. That change appears likely to be implemented for the 2015 season.

Mar 20 - 8:31 AM

Free agent RT Eric Winston has been elected the new president of the NFL Player union.

Winston succeeds Domonique Foxworth, who did not seek reelection. Winston beat out free agent FS Ryan Clark and Saints TE Ben Watson for the position. The 30-year-old has been an active union member since 2010 and was a leading voice for the players during the 2011 lockout. Winston is currently our No. 5 free-agent tackle available. He started all 16 games for Arizona last season.

Cardinals RT Eric Winston is already running with the first-team offense.

It was only a matter of time before Winston dispatched Bobby Massie, who may kick inside to right guard. He's currently running as the second-team right tackle. Winston has been cut by each of his past two teams, but remained an above-average tackle at age 30 last season. He's a nice addition for the NFL's worst line.
Tue, Jul 30, 2013 06:05:00 PM

Cardinals agreed to terms with RT Eric Winston on a one-year contract.

The top tackle left on the street is finally off the board. Although 29-year-old Winston has been cut in each of the last two offseasons, he brings 103 NFL starts to the table and was a top-nine right tackle in Pro Football Focus' 2012 grades with the Chiefs. He'll start there in Arizona, allowing Bobby Massie to move inside to right guard. Nate Potter will enter a camp duel with consistently disappointing LT Levi Brown. The Cardinals' offensive line is still a bottom-five unit, but they got better by adding Winston.
Thu, Jul 25, 2013 08:08:00 AM

Profootballtalk.com reports the Cardinals are "closing in" on a one-year deal with free agent RT Eric Winston.

Mike Florio adds that the deal could be completed within "the next 24 hours." The Cardinals' tackles were shoddy at best last season, and there have been recent reports that LT Levi Brown's play in the spring left a lot to be desired. The Cardinals prefer incumbent RT Bobby Massie inside at guard. Winston would start at right tackle, with Nate Potter pushing Brown for the left tackle job.
Wed, Jul 24, 2013 08:33:00 PM

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution suggests free agent RT Eric Winston as a fit for the Falcons.

Winston is battling a sharply deflated right tackle market, so perhaps he'll be willing to lower his contract demands soon. He's 30 years old and has been released in each of the last two offseasons. If the Falcons can get Matt Ryan a new contract and free up a little space, adding Winston would make some sense. Unproven incumbents Mike Johnson and Lamar Holmes are set to battle for the starting right tackle job in camp.
